Real Madrid to launch £97 million bid for Bayern superstar

Champions League By: Uche Duru | 13/06/2017

Real Madrid are gearing up to pull off one of the biggest transfer deals in history. Will they be able to?

The Los Blancos made history on the 3rd of June, after beating Juventus to a 4-1 deficit, therefore, being the only club to win the Champions League title back to back and they are not even relenting in building up their team strength having identified what they need for the upcoming season.

According to Spanish outlet Don Balon, Real Madrid are set to launch a huge bid for the services of Bayern Munich’s superstar striker Robert Lewandowski. The fee being reported on social media indicates that the Polish hitman would cost Los Blancos £97 million. However, reports emanating from the Spanish outfit must be taken with a pinch of salt due to their murky reputation.

Further to that, the report adds that Real Madrid will pursue Lewandowski if Karim Benzema leaves the club in the summer transfer window, which looks likely at this point of time due to the poor season he had endured at the Santiago Bernabeu.
